MANAGEMENT TRACK RECORD

Burj is creating a 500MW clean power platform in Pakistan backed by a proprietary pipeline of assets that have been matured in house. With a 50MW operational asset, 100MW in advance development, and 300MW mid-stage projects, we are well on our way to becoming a leading clean power generation company in the country.

CAPABILITIES

Our investment management orientation and in-house development & technical capabilities are core value creators. Expertise, experience and on-ground networks allow us to lock value early on during project development. This value is maintained by closely managing the construction and commissioning phases, and as assets stabilize post operations, we are able to create capital churn opportunities
